The final instalment of the successful Fearless Conversations series for 2022 will feature incoming Professor of Drama Dr Chris Hay and a panel of performance experts discussing cultural and social shifts on the Australian stage.
This special discussion, being conducted before a live audience at the Adelaide Festival Centre on 17 November, will focus on the increased demand for authenticity in performance that has emerged in Australia over the past decade.
Dr Hay, an Australian theatre and cultural historian who has joined Flinders’ College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences from the University of Queensland, will be joined by Gaelle Mellis, Creative Director of Tutti Arts; Nescha Jelk, Director of the stage production Single Asian Female; and Carissa Godwin, a Wemba-Wemba and Noongar actor and writer.
The esteemed panel will examine the identity positions of artists, directors and producers, and how the stories they tell and work they deliver has evolved to meet the needs of an industry that seeks to promote diverse stories.
